Atonement and forgiveness for child porn fiend

By johnboy - 21 April 2005 27

ABC Online brings the happy news, that one David John Fairhall of Banks, depite being found guilty of having more than 70,000 images of child pornography has walked away from the court a free man.

In sentencing, chief magistrate Ron Cahill described the offence as nasty and vile, but said Fairhall had done all he could to ensure he does not reoffend.

He imposed a 12-month suspended jail term and ordered Fairhall be assessed for entry into a sex offenders program.

Not exactly an example to encourage the others.*

* In this country [England] it is thought well to kill an admiral from time to time to encourage the others.

What’s Your opinion?

Totally agree with you LG. Castorate the bastard and then throw him in gaol for a long long time.

@Anonymous, news reports, confessions and other such public broadcasts of what people, paedophiles, have said. I make the distinction to point out that I don’t know any personally, doesn’t mean I don;t hear what they say though.

For example, I wish I could remember the name and program I saw this on, but, there is a paedophile in Sydney that after he was caught admitted that he was never going to stop feeling the urge, that the risk would never be mitigated by force of will even though he despised himself for it. So he voluntarily had himself castrated rather than risk hurting another child or being complicit in said acts.

Like I said, I wish I could reference it for credibilities sake. But there you go, just one of the many personal admissions I’ve seen.

It’s quite possible he deals with it in his job. So he knows it (or is told indirectly) the same way I know all people who use the term “kebab”, “gook” or “mud” to describe someone is a complete racist wanker.

anyone on this forum work for the RTA? how about a license plate number? id love to track this f***er down…

to think my mate is in jail over something so much less serious, while this guy is sitting at home watching high five

Git, you are so right. Paedophillia can not be cured, any more than being homosexual or heterosexual. People are sexually attracted to what they are sexually attracted to. End of story. The only way to stop them from preying on children is to keep them away from said children. If they only way to do that is prison, then so be it. I find it alarming that a paedophile gets off with a slap on the wrist, while a drug trafficker gets excecuted. Excecute the paedophile – the drug trafficker may be able to be saved!

“Paedophiles tell me (indirectly).”

I’m intrigued as to how they indirectly tell you this.

RandomGit 2:39 pm 22 Apr 05

Paedophiles tell me (indirectly). Of all the people in the world to tell me, they are the ones I’ll believe it from first.

LurkerGal 2:33 pm 22 Apr 05

VG, I believe that he means it is an urge, like being homosexual, or heterosexual. If you are attracted to women, you won’t change, if you are attracted to men, you won’t change, if you are attracted to little kids……

“Once you’re into that shit, the feeling never goes away I’m told.”

Who told you that, RandomGit? Someone with a good degree of expertise or knowledge of the field, or some opinionated person who deludes themselves that they know what they’re talking about?

The news article indicates that yes, it was a part of the big bust last September.

Marco 9:54 am 22 Apr 05

Was this case part of that huge child pornography bust that happened late last year?

(It concerns me that Banks is a suburb with lots and lots and lots of kids, actually.)

RandomGit 9:40 am 22 Apr 05

Maybe because there isn’t a prison to send them too? Or more precisely, enough space.

Or is it that they get sent to NSW prisons and ACT pays an exorbitant fee for this?

Fill me in.

acc 9:21 am 22 Apr 05

try working in a law enforcement agency when you see this type of things happen countless times a day. ACT is the hardest place in the world to get sent to gaol.

What is the best way to ensure someone does not re-offend, particularly for serious offences? Imprisonment.

LurkerGal 8:50 am 22 Apr 05

Graffitti by ALP staffer? Couldn’t give a shit. But THIS PISSES ME OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Put him in gaol. Let the “anti pedophiles” in there have some “quality time” with him.

LG (sorely tempted to use words she would never use ordinarily)

RandomGit 8:23 am 22 Apr 05

David John Fairhall is officially the most nervous man in Canberra.

Done all he could? I’d love to see that list quantified for rebuttal. Once you’re into that shit, the feeling never goes away I’m told.
